Lake Superior’s level is very low right now. Porter’s Island is accessible by foot at this time. There are few places where you have to rock hop but it is do-able. The lake does experience sache, an effect like the tide. The level can change quite a bit in just a few minutes. One notices this especially when looking for rocks to step on!

This photo was taken looking east at sunset.
Hunter’s Point is just one of many nice spots to watch the sun go down.
The clouds were fluffy and lit up by the setting sun – very cool. Horseshoe Harbor is a beautiful spot near Copper Harbor, owned by the Nature Conservancy.
The Thimbleberries are starting to ripen – lots to pick right now!
This trail is part of the amazing trail system here in Copper Harbor
Well the fireworks were set off despite the rain. The thunder/lightning was putting on a show of it’s own.
One of the fundraisers for the fireworks this year were laser glasses to watch the show through. I took the following shots through a pair. They made for some interesting displays!

Fanny Hooe Creek has been running pretty good lately. The creek empties out into Lake Superior near the Lighthouse Lookout.
There were some interesting clouds over the harbor this morning.
It was 46 degrees at 7 am – spring is coming….really!
